Greenoakhill Community Woodland Proposal

We’ve been contacted by Forestry Commission Consultants, Golley Slater.

Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) is conducting a community consultation exercise regarding the potential development of large landfill site and old quarry in your area into community woodland for recreational and educational use. We will refer to it as Greenoakhill Community Woodland.
You may already have heard of the site and know it as Paterson’s landfill site or simply ‘the coup’.
Forestry Commission Scotland are very keen to understand how interested the local communities around the site would be in seeing it developed and to understand if it would be used and valued by the community. The development of the whole site will happen in phases over the next ten years, with Phase 1 and 2 shown below being completed first.
We are very interested in hearing what you think about the development of this site and we would be most grateful if you could take a few minutes to fill in this simple and quick questionnaire – it should only take you a few minutes. If you feel you cannot fill in some questions, please just do what you can, all responses are useful.

Please fill in this questionnaire and give your opinion on the development of Greenoakhill Community Woodland

  1. I am a retired Landscape Architect living locally and for several years have been following the progress…or lack of it , in the restoration of the landfill site.
    I have been communicating with the Forestry Commission on numerous occasions and know that a considerable sum has been set aside for the restoration of the site as a wonderful community woodland park.
    However I am frustrated at the slow progress being made and keen to help wherever possible in pushing for a resolution to reclaiming this eyesore.

  2. I really hope this goes ahead as it will be good for all the local families to have somewhere nice to go a walk and for kids to play. I like to go jogging but from broomhouse to uddingston the pavements are terrible so it would be lovely to be able to jog somewhere nice.
